And the completed Rig-

The whole build took us about 5 hours and was a little tricky but we managed it. Trying to install windows 7 took the absolute piss, changing which sata3 ports it went into, updating the bios, damn partioning and the hard-drive in general.... 2 hours later we managed to fix all the minor issues

Specs of my new Rig:

case : CM Storm Trooper
OS : Windows 7 Home Premium
Motherboard: Asrock x79 Extreme4
Processor : Intel i7-3820 LGA 2011
CPU cooler: Intel Rts2011AC
RAM : Kingston Hyper-x 16GB DDR3 Quad Channel
GPU : 2x Palit GeForce GTX 670 2GB Jetstream
Hard Drive : 3TB
Power Supply : OCZ 1250W ZX series
Audio :Built in 7.1 HD realtek audio
DVD RW and Card Reader

If you ever wondered what my room looks like-

Omnomnom! Had a lot of fun building this
Surprised it went so smoothly for our first build just the hickup with the bios not liking the SATA3 port the hard drive was in xD (and a couple of other minor things)

I build a system at least once or two per week, some regular and some quite overpowered and some built to server specs, it really depends on what the costumer wants.

Build a gaming computer and send it to me? Mine is terrible and cannot afford a new one :/ (or parts)

Of-course I joke. But yeah, thats pretty cool.. Me, my dad and my brother have made every computer I've ever owned so-far (except my laptop :p)

If you built your own laptop I would be very impressed

Um yeah! thanks for sharing guys looks good! Nice parts! The cables could use a bit more of a tidy tho ^^

How is it sound wise ?

Yeah, those cables were so braided their thickness was the size of me arm, so we just thought "stick 'em as far right as possible and that'll do" xD
